Hello again! I always seem to do two or three posts right at the end of the month! I need to be more organised and do more through the month. It all depends on how I am feeling energy wise as to what I get done - M.E. can be such a pain! Quick and simple Christmas card today with Cardio stamps - I love them, they are so versatile! I must use them more often to make some cards other than wreaths - the possibilities are endless I just haven't ventured there yet!
I used stamps from four Cardio sets - Oriental Bloom, Whimsy Christmas, Elegant Baubles and Sweet Hearts. Using all pigment inks, I began by stamping the twig to make the main structure of the wreath, added all the flowers and leaves then the baubles and hearts. There is a lot of first, second, third and, even fourth, generation stamping to give depth. I drew strings for the baubles using a black marker pen then used Glossy Accents on the baubles and glitter for sparkle. The panel was glued to a red mat then a white card base and is flat for posting! Always good! I think I will make more of these!
I would like to enter the following challenges:
February Rudolph Days Challenge by Scrappymo - Anything Christmas.
Christmas Cards All Year Round - Use Red or Pink and add a Heart.
Bizzy Becs - Anything Goes.
I am happy to make Christmas Cards anytime and it gets me ahead for December entering Christmas Challenges nice and early!
Thank you so much for popping by - I am so happy that you have! Will be popping around blogland over the next few days to see all the lovely makes! Its never as much as I would like! So sorry!
Take care! Christine xxx
